April 22-25: David Ewing of Synapse Wireless to Speak at DesignWest

San Jose, CA

Synapse Wireless’ CTO, David Ewing, will be speaking at DesignWest:

Presentation: Cool Beanies! A Mesh Networked Cranial Cooling System
Location: Salon 1
Date: Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Time: 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM


Imagine the ultimate battery powered motorized propeller beanie cap, which forms an 802.15.4 mesh network with other nearby beanies! In this session, you will see “cap-net” in action as we demonstrate several of these beauties working in concert. How do you design the “geekiest” headgear ever? We’ll fully examine the hardware components and software code that make this project spin. Motor control, temperature sensors, accelerometers, leds, battery management – this project does it all with style! On the software front, the beanies are programmed wirelessly using embedded Python. And there’s a “cap-net” dashboard in the cloud! All of the code and hardware design files will be made available as open source so you can build your own beanie, or use these design techniques in your own projects.
